Injuries to limbs and joints of the upper extremities often cause permanent injuries, entitling injured workers to one-time case awards from the Workers' Compensation Board known as Schedule Loss of Use (SLU) awards. Even with therapy or surgery, you may have to live with chronic pain and significant loss of function for the rest of your life that affects your current job and future employment prospects.

We know what your case is worth, and we will work to maximize your award once you have reached maximum medical improvement. With six offices in the New York City area, we serve injured workers throughout Queens and Long Island.
